ELECTRIFY

December 19, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

http://apps4idevices.com/read/electrify
Electrify is a very powerful and flexible sample based groove machine. It does look a bit complex at first but that is only because it contains so many features. It’s just a matter of setting up sequences for each sample, then triggering each clip to create your arrangement. There are 8 tracks to work with and 8 layers to create variation or multiple song parts. There is a non-destructive sample editor to shape each sample and 2 effect busses each with 9 effects each to choose from. The mastering section contains an equaliser and compressor to further tighten the mix. Samples can be pasted in from the general pasteboard but it also comes with a great collection so you can get straight in and start creating. It’s worth spending the time to understand the workflow of Electrify because it is designed for live performances so it is easy to use. The live recording feature is perfect for creating both evolving loops, complete songs and interesting rhythm tracks. I love this app because it creates such good results, so rating this app is very easy….A Killer App!

Elecktroid – Electronic Machine Funk Instrument

October 22, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Audio Spillage has released Elecktroid which they describe as an ‘Electronic Machine Funk Instrument’. It’s a fusion of drum synth and and drum sampler with a custom designed rhythm sequencer. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Elecktroid effortlessly blends synthesis and sample playback in a single integrated package. Combine the depth and power of drum synthesis with your existing sample collections and sync both to a brand new rhythm oriented step sequencer with more than a few tricks up its digital sleeves.

Synthetic Heart
Pulsing away deep inside Elecktroid you’ll find 4 of our exclusive drum synthesis models: BassDrum, WoodDrum, HiHat and Snare. The drum synths are 100% algorithmic and utilise high quality DSP code for a deep, powerful and punchy sound. The synthesis algorithms can be used as the basis of an entire rhythm track on their own or layered with samples to add weight, depth and character to your existing sound sets and rhythms.

Sampler Spine
The backbone of Elecktroid is a high quality low CPU sample playback engine. Load up your favourite samples via the simple drag and drop interface. Refresh and re-animate your existing collection with the pitch envelope, modulation, distortion, filter and graphic loop editing capabilities. Elecktroid can velocity cross-fade between 2 samples per pad and accepts WAV, AIFF and CAF format files.

Sequencer Brain
The new rhythm oriented step sequencer brings Elecktroid to life right inside your DAW. Forget about stale lifeless rhythms. Elecktroid features custom track lengths and step trigger probability controls opening the door to a world of non-repetitive poly-rhythmic beats. Inject groove and humanoid feel to suit. Elecktroid’s sequencer is a resolution-independent design so patterns play at the correct tempo regardless of step length (16th, 32nd etc). Elecktroid also features graphic velocity and parameter control graph editing.

Pricing and Availability:
$55 (20% off intro offer)
